Content: Aldo (45 years old) and Maria (41 years old), married for 13 years with two children, asked for sex therapy. Aldo complains of lifelong premature ejaculation (PE), whereas Maria reports no sexual problems. His IELT worsened throughout the passing time and is currently less than 1 minute. Aldo underwent two medical consultations with different specialists, with no evident results. Maria is upset and disappointed about their sexual life; she has known about his PE since they met, but he had promised he would do something to solve the problem. She is now avoiding any physical contact.

They have become emotionally distant and severely distressed. The biopsychosocial assessment reveals a few more critical aspects in their life that may sustain the symptom. Dr. Stanley Althof discusses this prevalent case presented by Francesca Tripodi, sharing his clinical experience on several issues:

  1. What does premature ejaculation means to the man, the woman, and the couple, and which are the benefits of involving the partner in the treatment?
  2. Why do many men avoid using the prescribed medication despite looking for a fast solution to their sexual problems?
  3. How can we harmonize different approaches (psychological, medical, etc.), and where should we start from?
  4. Which mistakes should clinicians avoid in this case, and which obstacles could they meet?
